There isn`t much more annoying than having what you (at least) consider as a really good idea and intending to write it down someday and then finding that some one else has already had it. I had a friend in Nagoya who refused to read any Neil Gaiman as he kept pre-empting her ideas and being adored because of it. Now I have a new nemesis in the form of Mark Hodder who has taken an idea of mine (admitedly one that didn`t require too much of a stretch of the imgination) and turned it into something great. I will fume in my impotence, jealous of his success and keep my ideas to myself in future, boxing them into my inner psyche so no one my usurp me.
